Invisible Atom | 2b theatre company
A small dark space made even more confined by black curtains opened only a few feet apart. A small square stage. A shaft of bright light. A man caught, not only in the glare, but in the moment.

The Drill | Women's Circus

As a space that facilitated the military training of young men from the Footscray community who were then sent to faraway battlefields, The Drill now fills this space with contemporary circus, theatre and music.
